Hey all,

I love all kinds of bands... but my favorite types of music are alternative rock and psychedelic rock. My favorite band ever is Wilco, but I also love the Beatles, Brian Wilson, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Radiohead, etc. What's your favorite band ever? 

Thanks,

Madeline

I do not have a favorite band but Buddha Bar is my favorite compilation albums. So yes, I do fancy Buddha Bar a lot!

Favourite is tough, I love so much music. Metallica, Ludivico Einaudi, Julian Baker, The Head and the Heart, M83, The Band and Weezer are a sampling of some of my biggest musical influences. There are just way too many to list though.

It's a difficult one has it has changed over the years. I probably could not pick a single one but The Rolling Stones, The Doors, Creedance Clearwater Revival, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd and The Ramones would have to be in the shortlist. Having said that lots more are coming to mind. Individuals like Carlos Santana and Chuck Berry. Such a variation!

Hi Tracy 

I like all of those.  My favourite Song of all time is Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen.  There have been others but none like this.

There are just so many, so this question posed in this topic is a truly difficult one.

 

But if pressed to only pick one, my favorite band/artist ever would have to be Jimi Hendrix. He produced music that was so ground breaking then, and so highly influential for my young ears (at the time).

 

Honorable mention to

 

Led Zeppelin

Yes

The Beatles

Rush

Crosby, Stills, and Nash

Emerson, Lake, and Palmer

For me it is a tie between Bob Seger and the Silver bullet band and REO Speedwagon. Have seen Seger 3 times, and REO 8.

Other that make the list not in any order:

Styx

Boston

Pink Floyd

Toby Kieth

AC/DC

Most of the time it is the song more than the artist.

Depends on the day and on hormone levels.Right now I am mid way through my injection cycle and Social Distortion its number one on thew playlist.But my tastes are pretty wide ranging. Right after an injection it is The Bangles, Adele, Maria McKee and she leads into Lone Justice from there to Green Day. From Social Distortion the journey heads into an almost fatal dose of Zeppelin, Cream and Sabbath. As the day of injection gets closer Kasey Chambers, Ronstadt and Tanya Donnelly are on the playlist.

My favorite band of all time is Journey. There are other bands that I favor, but I love every song Journey has produced.

I am finding it very interesting how many of us like the same music.  What's up with that?  (incidentally, that's a ZZ Top song)

 

My fav of all time is probably Pink Floyd.  My thinking and feelings have always been heavily influenced by them.  I love everything about their music and lyrics.  Hard to find a bad song.

 

Honorable mention would go to Black Sabbath, again because they influenced me greatly.

 

Obviously, those two represent quite a dichotomy musically, which is a valid representation of me.  Lyrically, they're not all that different.  These two account for a disproportionate amount of my listening time throughout my years.  These are the bands I put on headphones for.

 

I haven't seen White/Rob Zombie mentioned on either of these music threads.  They/he are one of my gotos when I'm in the mood for razor-edged head banging.  I like every song on Hellbilly Deluxe.

Thanks Tori

You just bought a memory back.  The first time I ever heard a cd played was at a  friends place in Melbourne.  The cd was Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon.  It was heavenly.

At that time (age 15 I think??) I already owned Animals (still my personal fav) but had not heard Dark Side.  The first time I heard it was at a friend's and we were tripping.  Before I left his house, I had traded him out of it!  I still have it.  It's a UK Quadraphonic vinyl.  Of course, I've never found a quad system to play it on.

Being I am left handed I play a left handed Hofner violin style bass and was bitten by their music bug in February 1964 and I have been a songwriter and musician ever since - I would like you to guess who my favorite band and influences.....

Although The Eagles, Pink Floyd (Dark Side of the Moon), Led Zeppelin, Yes (before they got carried away getting too complicated) and my vocal heroes CSN - when I wrote, I can do up to 8 vocal harmonies and they end up usually sounding like CSN meets James Taylor.

I have loved the band 10 Years since i was... 15? that was about 9 years ago so I guess I've loved them for a LONG time, lol! I'm listening to all my music on shuffle and the first song I've ever heard by them came on: Wasteland. What a coincidence! They're labeled as Alt-Metal? Don't know what that means. I saw them once in January 2018 I believe. It was my first ever concert and it was EPIC!! I love them to bits! An up and coming contender to them though, is Artificial Language which I've found in the last year? They ROCK! They're labeled as Prog-Metal I believe.

Growing up...For years, I listened to anything and everything Led Zeppelin. I practically lived for Led Zeppelin. Then in the early 80’s moved into alt rock, then (and still) jazz, then by the 90’s, I added Trance, Electronica, and New Age to my favs. Today,  if I had to narrow it down to a single band I enjoy most, I’d have to say almost ANYTHING from the band Enigma and their related Gregorian projects.

The Doors! I was 15 in '67 and doing the whole garage band thing and when I first heard them on AM radio. I collected their albums and sat at my Farfisa single keyboard at home playing along. I dressed like Morrison and, being a budding poet myself, I scribbled raunchy doggerel verse. And. . .AND! I have always been pretty decent when it comes to imitating voices and I did His very well according to friends. The song: The End was my then ultimate favorite song of all time.

But times do change. . .sigh!

Wow, so many choices, but if I had to put one band at the top of my list is has to be Pink Floyd.  Their progressive style has always moved me and has made progressive rock my favorite genre.  

 

A shout out to you though cybreraphael for mentioning 10 Years;  I really like them a lot.  They are one of my favorite modern bands, and I think it is because of their progressive underpinnings.

     i won't forget how the Beatles changed the whole music scene.  I loved them and as their music changed i grew to respect them more and more.  At bit later i listened to the Stones and other groups.  I vividly remember moments of a Janice Joplin concert at the Fillmore East.  A bit later i was at a free Grateful Dead concert in a park in Atlanta.  The band came out and played after a regular concert. The folks in the sound truck threw marshmellows to folks as they came in.  Eating several of those made the night and the music merge.

Ahh the 60's

That song is like soooo deep. Morrison once would be arrested on stage, that just added to his mystique :)

I have to share something I hope you enjoy. I run something in our community called a Chautauqua - it is living history where the performer dresses as a historical person like Amelia Earhart, George Washington, Robin Williams, Calamity Jane, Lucille Ball, and on and on and come out and talk to the audience as that person and then field questions. I have done Jim Morrison and I had the band there as well and I did an unplugged evening as Tom Petty and then did Petty as a benefit for the homeless. 

Any way ... back to the story... when I did Jim Morrison, my friend asked this 84 year old regular attendee if he even knew who Jim Morrison was and he said no, but he always learns something at the Chautauqua's when he comes. I also have to share that my step-daughter still has a hard time thinking of me (I was 60 at the time) running around stage in tight leather pants. I attached photos of me as Jim Morrison, Tom Petty and Paul McCartney LOL

It is rather hard to describe the Fillmore.  It was wonderful to be in a large auditorium filled with long haired folks.  At that time long hair created a kind of instant bond and trust. The summer of love had just passed and while society wondered what was going on, it seemed there was a kind of beautiful peaceful revolution going on.  My girlfriend and i sat down and enjoyed the many joints that freely passed seemingly everywhere.  BB King had all of us up and dancing almost as soon as he came out.  Some other unknown group, like the Doors came next.  They were wonderful.  I had gone to see Janis and she did not disappoint.  Her singing gripped and tore at ones senses and soul.  So much was expressed.  BBKing came out and played with her.  It was certainly a beautiful night worth remembering.  Thank you for asking about that time.  The music and life of the late sixties changed me forever.

 

Hugs,

 

Charlize

WOW...double WOW - what amazing line up ... I wanted to go to Woodstock but I was like a junior in high school and I could not find someone to go to New York with me - so I was BUMMED - I am going to be presenting a Woodstock presentation at one of my Chautauqua's in town - I have a slide presentation of how it got going, the principals, the struggles, interesting facts, the performers then and now (if still alive) and several couples (like the couple on the cover of the triple album set) then and now. And I assembled a band to do a mini-Woodstock set so people can enjoy or remember and re-enjoy the music.

      This is irrelevant. There is a lot of diversity amongst Christians, as every Cristian is quick to point out whenever someone accuses Christianity of being homophobic, but the not allowing Christians to talk about Christ in public would immediately cause every Christian in the country to start screaming that the Chrisian religion is being eradicated. A Jew who saw himself as primarily a German citizen would have still been killed in the holocaust. Primary identity does not matter, only whether or not you are part of the group.   It also makes life difficult, and makes you feel alone, as any community interaction will break concealment. A community is important because being trans comes with difficulties unique to trans people, you can't ask a cis person about stuff like binders, and having to deal with problems only you have that you can't discuss with anyone else is dangerous.   Do you live in Florida? Ron DeSantis is the current favorite amongst republicans for president. He is isolating Floridian trans people to the point that many are just leaving.   By weak state, do you mean stopping States from enacting laws that are harmful? Taking away power from the State? In that case, I agree! Let's make a broad law, one that applies to all the States, stopping all legislature from excluding on basis of gender, sexuality, and gender identity on all levels of government. Something on a national level. What would you call that? Maybe... Federal law. That sounds catchy, right?   For anyone who didn't catch on, the italics were a joke.

      I'm not sure this thread had much do do with gun control in the beginning.   I don't know if there is much to be done anyway.  Let's face it, guns are already here.  Perhaps it would be better if that wasn't the case, but… I think  mass shootings are a separate issue.    The subject is more about using the powers of the government to persecute a minority.
    • MiraF
      From an article about mass school shootings: " While seemingly random, experts say these shootings typically have one thing in common: they mostly happen in small, rural towns.   Back in 2018, the Associated Press reported that of the 10 deadliest school shootings in the U.S., all but one happened in towns with fewer than 75,000 residents. Most of them were in cities with less than 50,000 people. Uvalde's population fits these criteria, sitting at 15,860. " The reason people don't see shootings in their rural neiborhoods is that you are in small towns. LA accounts for 10% of the California population, and rural towns account for 6% of the population. If there is a mass shooting in LA, 10% of Californians get to say, "there was a mass shooting in my city", and if there is a mass shooting in a rural town, 0% of Californians get to say, "there was a mass shooting in my town", so even though there are more mass shootings per capita in rural areas, less people realize this is happening in places like theirs. Just because it hasn't happened in your town doesn't mean mass shootings happen less in towns like yours, in fact they happen more often.   Source of the quote: https://bakersfieldnow.com/news/local/why-mass-school-shootings-continue-to-happen-in-small-towns
    • Ivy
      Yeah.  I totally get it. I'm pretty sure this was what was really going on.   This happened a lot.   I mean, how could you not?
    • MiraF
      False. There are higher rates of mass shootings in US states with more relaxed gun control laws: https://www.bmj.com/company/newsroom/higher-rates-of-mass-shootings-in-us-states-with-more-relaxed-gun-control-laws/ If what you said is true, how come there are far fewer mass shootings in countries with robust gun control laws? Myth: Gun violence happens everywhere. The NRA often points to incidents of gun violence abroad to argue gun laws are ineffective and such widespread gun violence is not unique to America. However, the evidence tells a different story. Fact: While most countries experience occasional incidents of gun violence, the gun violence epidemic is a uniquely American experience. The United States has the highest level of gun violence across developed nations, with a gun homicide rate 26 times greater than that of peer nations.14 This number is even higher among young Americans, who experience a gun homicide rate 49 times greater than that of other developed nations. Source: https://www.americanprogress.org/article/debunking-myths-the-gun-lobby-perpetuates-following-mass-shootings/   PS: Myth: Mass shooters are likely to target gun-free zones. Gun lobbyists often deploy this myth to deter legislative efforts to limit gun carrying in certain locations that are considered particularly sensitive or unsuitable for guns, such as schools, houses of worship, or government buildings. However, the overwhelming majority of fatal mass shootings in the United States occur in locations where guns are allowed or not explicitly banned, such as in private homes or public locations. Fact: Most mass shootings occur in areas where guns are permitted. The gun lobby often claims that 98 percent of mass shootings occur in gun-free zones, but research has thoroughly debunked this. Of the 156 mass shootings that occurred from 2009 to 2016, only 10 percent occurred in gun-free zones. The majority of these shootings—63 percent—occurred in private homes.

      Always a Star Trek fan, and I grew up with TOS, TNG, and DS9.  Enterprise came along when I was a teenager, and I enjoy the recent series that are being produced.
    • awkward-yet-sweet
      The young vote Democrat because their schools taught them to do so since the 90's, and higher education is controlled by leftists.  No surprise there.  When the typical Republican candidate mostly pleases the aging Boomers and has little to offer the young, they aren't going to do well.  "MAGA" doesn't mean anything to those who aren't old enough to remember when America was great....
